“Uncover Tunes with Ease: Shazam’s New Feature Identifies Music through App with Headphones On”

Shazam now lets you identify music while wearing headphones, the Apple-owned company announced this week. You can open up the Shazam app, click to Shazam and then head back to TikTok. Or, say you’re wearing headphones in a coffeeshop and want to know what song is playing in the café. It’s worth noting that Shazam already allowed users to identify songs playing in apps, as it rolled out the ability to identify songs on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok last year. But up until now, you couldn’t do so if you were wearing headphones.

Shazam has made a new update this week that is a game changer for music lovers who wear headphones. The Apple-owned company has now made it possible for users to identify songs while still wearing their headphones. All you have to do is open the app and check for the headphone icon, which will confirm that your headphones are connected. Then, you can start identifying the music playing around you or within apps like TikTok and YouTube. The best part? This feature works with both wired and Bluetooth headphones.

Let’s say you’re scrolling through TikTok with your headphones on and come across a catchy song in a video. Instead of pausing the video and taking off your headphones to use Shazam, you can now simply open the app, click to “Shazam,” and then return to TikTok. After a few seconds, the music will stop for a split second and then you can go back to the Shazam app to see the title and artist of the song.

But that’s not all. Let’s say you’re enjoying a cup of coffee at a cafe, with headphones on, and you hear a song playing in the background that you just have to know the name of. With the new update, you can now Shazam the song without having to remove your headphones. Talk about convenience!

It’s worth noting that Shazam already allowed users to identify songs playing in apps. Last year, the app rolled out the ability to identify songs on popular apps like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. However, the one limitation was that you couldn’t do it while wearing headphones. Luckily, this obstacle has now been removed.

If you’re not familiar with Shazam, it was founded back in 2002 and was later acquired by Apple for a whopping $400 million in 2017. With a user base of over 300 million monthly users globally, it’s safe to say that this app has a strong hold in the music industry.

If you’re a fan of discovering new music or simply love to know the name of any song you hear, then this update from Shazam is definitely a game changer. No more stopping what you’re doing or taking off your headphones to use the app – just seamless music identification while you keep rockin’ out.
